http://m.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/35702455Euro 2016 matches could be played behind closed doors in the event of a terror alert at this summer's finals.
European football's governing body Uefa is drawing up anti-terror contingency plans for the event in France.
The move follows November's Paris attacks, which included attempts to detonate explosives at the Stade de France during a France v Germany game.
tournament director Martin Kallen said.If there is a security issue, we would need to play the match without fans,
Moving matches to different venues is another option being considered.
Kallen added.It's possible that matches would be postponed or played later,The international friendly between France and Germany at the Stade de France was one of several targets in the 13 November attacks, although suicide bombers were thwarted in their attempts to get into the stadium.But today there are no signs of any extreme threats or alarming issues.
Explosions were heard by people inside the ground but the match continued.
The attacks left 130 people dead and many more seriously injured.
The German national team remained in the stadium overnight.
The Stade de France will host the opening game of the tournament between France and Romania on 10 June, as well as the final and other matches.
Wednesday marks 100 days to the start of the finals.

I have to admit that this doesn't actually surprise me, as awful as it may be.
